The 5 of us spent hours on a rainy day, just playing, laughing and having fun. Let's be honest here people... If you want a serious gaming machine, the Wii is not going to be you first choice! So don't expect mind blowing games from a machine that simply cannot deliver them... As a family machine, the Wii is excellent. Unfortunately, most of the games are utter garbage. There are even fewer that are capable of grabbing a child's attention without being too complicated in the controls. This game is excellent for kids and fun for adults too.
Okay, Wii Fishing Resort. 4 players can go head to head in some fishing situations. Graphics are bold, vibrant and well put together. Action is alright and was more than enough to hold the attention of the youngest in our little group at 5 years old. Controls were easily handled be even the 5 year old. Casting does seem a little glitchy but not bad.
You are given a large selection of bait, lures, rods, reels, clothing to purchase. The aquarium you become the manager of is very neat in that all your catches go into here for viewing pleasure and you get to reap the rewards of visitors paying to view the aquariums. Boat trips, bicycles, kayaks, etc. Are all little things that add to the adventure.
If you are expecting Zelda like quests and adventure, you will be disappointed. If you want a game you can easily play with the kids or just while some time away, pick this game up. You will enjoy it. I also have the Fishing Master World Tour... I really hate that game. Wii Fishing Resort is miles ahead of that game in graphics, game play and all around fun.
I really hope they make a sequel with better side activities and the addition of fishing lines in the store would be excellent.… Expand
